The Quibbler

Lovegood was the surname of a wizarding family. They lived in a house near Ottery St. Catchpole in Devon, England, and thus close to the Weasley, Fawcett, and Diggory families. It is unknown if they were pure-blood or had Muggle as well as wizarding heritage.

The Lovegoods were generally regarded as unusual by mainstream society, as they tended to hold and espouse belief in things most others do not believe in, often published in the family magazine, The Quibbler. The Lovegoods are related by marriage to the Scamander family, as Luna Lovegood married Rolf Scamander and had two children, Lorcan and Lysander Scamander.

Etymology

Lovegood is a compound word and a real English surname.

Behind the scenes

  • In the films, the Lovegoods appear to be Irish. This is largely due to the fact that Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna, is Irish. Xenophilius, played by Welsh actor Rhys Ifans, also has an Irish accent.
  • The Lovegoods are also mentioned to be at the 1994 Quidditch World Cup.

Notes and references

  1. Both Xenophilius Lovegood and his wife were magical, their daughter was allowed to attend Hogwarts during the 1997-98 school year, and Xenophilius was not rounded up with other Muggle-borns.
